Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Pork With Red Chili Sauce

low-cal, mexican, sauces, pork, chili

3 lb boneless lean pork butt
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 large onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
6 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoon tomato paste

Serve this traditional Mexican entree as a filling for corn or flour tortillas or as an accompaniment to rice and beans. Garnish with tomato slices and fresh cilantro for a colorful meal. Trim and discard all fat from the meat and cut into 1-inch cubes. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high, and cook meat, a few pieces at a time, until brown. Push meat to one side of the pan, add onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin and oregano; cook until onion is limp. Stir in water, honey, salt and tomato paste. Simmer, covered, until pork is tender, about 1 hour. Skim off fat and discard. To serve, fill warm corn or flour tortillas (made with margarine) with meat mixture. Include rice or beans, if desired, and garnish.
